Describe your childhood growing years:
Coming from a family with four girls and two loving parents in a small town two hours south of Sydney, my childhood was all about adventures and being outdoors.
On weekends the family would be taking camping trips and going on regular nature walks. We had many animals and lived next to a farm so we were able to have a horse and see her every day. My childhood definitely shaped me to be a caring, loving, adventurous and an active person.
What lessons did you learn from your childhood?
I learned from my childhood that life is about experiences and relationships. Whether that be with family, friends, nature, animals or oneself. To nurture and respect the relationships in your life is to ensure happiness and the feeling of fulfilment.
Any special facts or story about your family?
The Kean family are very close and supportive of one another. We still take those nature walks and camping trips together like we did when I was young.
We are currently planning and building a 100% sustainable house out in the bush in my hometown together, and are about to take a 44km track through the Australian forrest and will be spending a night on the way in an Eco Lodge.
What is the most unusual thing you have ever done?
Probably lots of things - but the funniest thing I think most people will find about me is my pets! I have two bearded dragons, I have named them Squid and Pony. I also have a fluffy white bunny called Falcor (named after the luckdragon in the 80's movie The NeverEnding story).
What is your most memorable moment?
My most memorable moment was about a year ago when I decided to hold a charity fundraiser to help sick and disadvantaged children. After months of preparation for my event the event was a huge success and the moment my auctioneer told me how much we raised I burst into tears with joy. The event I had coordinated managed to raise over $30,000. I had met a lot of the children who were being helped by the charity organisation and I really believe in giving back to those less fortunate.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
My advocacy is animal agriculture. Raising animals and livestock for human consumption is the number one contributor to climate change. I want to influence people to make better choices so we can reduce the affects animal agriculture has on our earth. Animal agriculture contributes to green house gas emissions, deforestation, ocean dead zones, habitat destruction species extinction and water usage. Climate change is real and is happening right in front of our eyes. We need to make better choices now to ensure a healthy earth for future generations of people and animals walking the Earth.
What can you promote about your country?
Australia, also known as the land down under, is both a country and continent surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Oceans. It is home to an array of sights, natural wonders and some of the most unusual animals that cannot be found anywhere else on earth.
Australia is implementing change and policies to combat climate change. The government's policies reduce emissions by boosting energy productivity, reducing waste rehabilitating degraded land, increasing renewable energy and driving innovation.
What trivia about yourself would like to share?
I truly see myself as a Woman of the Earth having travelled to over fifteen different counties and I fully immerse myself in their cultures. Whenever I travel my favourite thing to do is nature walks and studying the environments of these places. I have a life long dream to volunteer in an orang-utan sanctuary and contribute to saving these wonderful creatures.
